A cross-post for y’all, from Adam and Eve…!
Gone are the days when sex toys were a taboo topic predominantly associated with a shady porn industry. Sex toys are set to match smartphone sales in the next ten years, and much of this is due to the increasing salaries and freedom of women in America over the past few generations.
The majority of women now own and use a sex toy (such as the ones over at Adam and Eve), with vibrators being the most popular choice. Married women are now more than twice as likely to use a vibrator than single women, and 78 percent of women who have used a sex toy said they were also in a relationship.
The top states for sex toy purchases may also surprise you. Liberal states like California and New York fail to make an appearance in the top ten, while the vastly rural states of Wyoming and Alaska round out the number one and number two states for sex toy purchases respectively. This may not have been the case in 1918, before the advent of interstates and when vibrators made their first appearance in a Sears catalog (in the “Home Appliances” section, naturally).
Today, sex toys run the gamut from discreet to ultra kinky to completed blinged out– the most expensive vibrator is covered in 117 diamonds and comes with a not-so-discreet $55,000 price tag. Welcome to the 21st century Pleasure Town.
